“Loco J's is a local eatery that offers a mix of good and not-so-good dishes. The atmosphere is pleasant, with a young and attentive staff providing good service. The food is decent, with some standouts like the salted tortilla chips and salsa, and the drunken beans, which have a slight kick. The burrito fillings are also good, but the outside salsa can be overwhelming. The fish tacos are okay, but nothing special. The price is normal, and it's a great spot to grab a drink and some good food. A must-try is the red salsa on top of the burrito, which adds a delicious and spicy kick.”

“Buffalo Chip Saloon and Steakhouse in Cave Creek offers bull riding events with great service, but parking can fill up quickly and there is only cash payment for tickets. The food is mostly well-liked, with standout dishes being the buffalo chip burger, pulled pork sandwich, fries, and fried okra. Prices are on the higher side for food and drinks. Vegetarian option includes fried okra. The restaurant is ADA compliant, but may not be overly kid-friendly or suitable for large groups.”
